As it is a great blessing to be a Christian, there are also responsibilities and more importantly the blessed dress code of being an elect of the Lord.
"Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. " Colossians 3:12-13 (NKJV)
We cannot be who we should be unless we have what we should have, and all this comes as a result of our new being.
"For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ." Galatians 3:27 (NKJV)
Yes!! when we accepted the Lord we renounced our old self and we put on Christ and thus the behaviour and attributes of Christ should be found in us.
"But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts." Romans 13:14 (NKJV)
By putting on the Lord Jesus Christ, we offer ourselves to the Lord to live a holy and blessed life.
The Lord has considered us precious and called us as His elect to show forth to the world His glory and His majesty.
Thus may the world see us full of love & hope and all the goodness as they find in Christ Jesus our Lord.
